pop up nuisance

  charlton200 09:40 15 Oct 2007

We have two account on our computer , mine and my wifes. On my account i get no pop ups at all. my wife didn't get any to about 2 weeks ago, but now she get them all the time. she has two popup blockers and i have run all the free spy-ware programs and I still can't stop them for her, some of the pop ups are advertising spyware programs and other are just random rubbish.
I am not sure what she has installed to cause this.

Have you got any ideas please as she is nagging me to get them stopped and i don't know what else I can do.

thanks very much

I have just given that a try, no luck.

I left the computer on her homepage for 1/2 hour to do something else and when I came back another 6 popups had appeared and i wasn't even using it, although the INTERNET was still on.
